Sculpting Putties and plastics?

Post by Shadowless on Sun Oct 26, 2008 11:39 am

I use Epoxy knead-it, but only have about 2 minutes to work before it goes off. What other similar 2 pack putties are on the market that will give me more time to work? confused

I've used Green Stuff...it's workable for quite a while, but it is pretty sticky to work with, and I don't know how "solid" it gets. I used it for filling in holes and sculpting clothing flaps, and it worked well for that.
Oh, and hair, I sculpted hair...that worked out ok.

It's been some time since my last custom but I use Kneadite (Green Stuff) and Apoxie Sculpt. The trick with Kneadite (Green Stuff) is to use water to keep it moist and workable. I don't have the URL on me, but there is a table that list working time, cure time etc. between puttys.

After struggling with the green stuff, on the last couple of customs I've used a 2 part resin from bunnings then carved the shapes into it. there is also green stuff that comes ina tube which I use the same way....working time I have found to be very short/difficult with most things....

Aves epoxy sculpt.
Try it once and never use anything else again.

Greenstuff = awesome for things that are flexible and thing, ie, hair, clothing, or fine detail straps. couple of hours, but remains flexible sorta....

Aves apoxy = great for sculpting large mass things, like muscle, hair bulk, clothing bulk etc. takes a few hours for it to dry

mori mori putty = lightweight putty for making really interesting shapes, but i so cant use it well yet, need more practice, but apparently its the 'favourite japanese putty of choice ' or something LOL. but sets real quick.

just my 2 bobs worth as well, but everyone else has said the same anyways LOL.

You have been doing customs for ages shadowless, I thought u would be a fountain of knowledge already! =-)

The older I get the more my fountain dries up. Wink

How well does paint stick to Green Stuff and Aves apoxy?

After playing StarWars Unleashed, I decided to make a few StarWars themed Sigma 6 customsÖ..They arenít of any particular characters, just part of the StarWars verse. Iíll post some pics when Iím done.

It sticks fine. All my customs from ozfigures were done with those 2 sculpting materials, so it should be no probs. Metroid's Samas Aran was pretty much nothing BUT apoxy sculpt, and shes held up fine

good luck with the sigmas, never got into them other than getting snake eyes ane stormy. Be good to make an apprentice though!
